Focus on the Future Tour - Oslo

Added 10 January 2014 View full list    Print version    

‘If we don’t shape the future,’ says Mal Fletcher, ‘the future is certain to re-shape us.’

With that in mind, Next Wave International co-sponsored the 2020Plus Focus on the Future European tour in November 2013. 

Focus on the Future

Following a successful event in the UK, the tour went on to Oslo and Helsinki. Future events are intended for other centres in Europe.

The Oslo event was hosted by Pastor Stephan Christiansen, leader of the thriving Jesus Church Oslo.

The half-day intensive event brought together church leaders from across the city and further afield, for keynote presentations from Mal Fletcher on the future of technology, human rights, social ethics and more.

The goal of the event was to equip pastors to understand likely future change and prepare for it – so they in turn can equip their people to proactively engage and, in some cases, overcome it.

Judging by feedback on the day, the event was a great success and really helped leaders to better understand the skills they will need to shape the future in their communities.

Our thanks go to Pastor Stephan and Pastor Anna, his wife, who are very good friends of this ministry. We're grateful for their invaluable support in sending invitations and bringing together the logistics of the event.

Whilst in Oslo, Mal also gave three one-hour lectures in the leadership training college attached to the church.

This school is well known in the church throughout much of Norway; it is a centre devoted to promoting both excellence and anointing for future church leadership.

Man this site rocks! I get fired up on this site every week and challenged by the daily recharges, but the best thing is to see how you guys are finding ways to communicate Jesus to today's people in a way they can get it. I've got plenty of ideas from you for my service here in Japan. Keep it up!

I was reading 'Not My Fault'. As a pastor I read your articles with great interest -- very insightful. Thanks for your prophetic voice to this Post Modern Generation.
